Like your gonna get in VIP !!!!!

27 04 2007

With the Wizards down 0-2 what would make any regular Washingtonian party with the Cavs? So you think your gonna be at the party of the year or you think you gonna meet all the fly women? Let me wake you up out of your dreams….


10. Your name isn’t on the List

9. You don’t know any of Larry or Lebron’s boys

8. You don’t play in the League

7. Just because you party there on the regular don’t mean your getting in the club

6. Your fake bling and rent money won’t make you look like a baller

5. If you read the unprinted fine print it clearly states only VIP will be able to get into VIP

4. You won’t get to talk to them one on one

3. Your outfit isn’t going to let you in unless your Buffy the Body

2. Your press credential won’t get you into party

1. You aren’t on the team nor do you know anybody so stay home and soak it up

The Season never ends…….

When the season ends, thats when the real work begins for many ballers. BasketballLifesyle took a look at the ballers of GW. With Carl Elliott putting in work for the upcoming NBA Draft, his season is never over until Draft night. Former Colonial JR Pinnock is back home after playing in the NBDL this past season. And he is on a mission to have his name in a Washington Wizards jersey like his former teammate Mike Hall. Stay tuned all as we provide weekly photos,interviews and video……..

King will Come

20 04 2007


Lebron just never goes away. Last year he alone beat the Wizards to advance to the second round of the NBA playoffs, and now it’s part 2 of this heated series. What’s missing is Agent Zero and CB4 , all the Wizards have left is Atwan and that’s more then he can handle. But don’t count the Wizards out, they are capable of keeping a good pace with the Cavs. The big question is can they finish with a win or at least tie the series. CB4 is making a comeback second round(if we make it).
